As you begin working with the ideas of “A Course in Miracles,” fear may arise. It is only ego-thinking that causes upset. To attain a state of sustained happiness, you must free the mind of ego-thinking and become reliant only on Spirit.
The journey Home through “A Course in Miracles” is about seeing everything as your own lesson and being totally uncompromising with that. As you heal perception you begin to experience a peaceful mind. Learn of the true meaning of cause and effect as the Spirit would teach it; that problems in the world have no cause outside of mind, and are simply attempts to deviate your mind away from realizing your own perfection. You are the real Effect (the Son) of the one Cause (God).
Certainty does not rest on future events or circumstances. It allows all things to be exactly as they are, and simply rests. When you try to plan and predict from the ego’s perspective, you live in uncertainty and often feel anxious or fearful. Dive into the depths of the true meaning of certainty and the practical steps towards experiencing the Certainty of God all throughout the day. Become clueless, and, “Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.” W-189.7
What are attack thoughts? How can you release attack thoughts so that you can feel at peace? David Hoffmeister shares in depth that attack thoughts and seeing the world and others apart from you must come up into awareness in order to heal the mind that believes in separation. Healing involves integration and not holding anything apart from the all-inclusiveness of the Mind and thought of God.
The state of purity that you are as God created you is free of challenge of any kind. Your life can be absolutely effortless and free. Exchange wanting for peaceful contentment as you question ego thought system. Hear David Hoffmeister go into the question of, “Who is the ‘you’ that wants?” and see that only ego can want anything, because it is the belief in lack and separation. Your holiness is your salvation!
